Careers by the Numbers!

Only two more days for my giveaway!  Make sure you enter here to win Laura Mercier's Pink Mosaic Shimmer Bloc!

 I found a cute little article that I thought I would share with you!  What is your "number?" Does it match your career?

Judy Smith, author of "Business Mojo: Achieving Success Through Mystical Exploration"
Chances are, you probably haven't considered numerology when it comes to your job search or career assessment.

Based on the belief that a person comes into this life on a certain date with a certain name for specific spiritual reasons, the "numbers" from this incident are used to describe who a person is and their life map.

Each number from one through nine has certain characteristics with strengths and weaknesses, adding an interesting aspect to career choice assessment and job satisfaction.

Let's examine Steve Jobs' numbers:
To calculate his birth path number, we do the following:
Steve Jobs birthdate:
Add the numbers in the year together:
1 + 9 + 5 + 5 = 20
To the year number, add the month and day of birth:
20 + 2 + 24 = 46
Add the end result together to obtain a one-digit number:
4 + 6 = 10 then 1 + 0 = 1

This makes Steve Jobs a No. 1 birth path number. Think of his innovation, leadership and determination; all signs of a typical No. 1. A birth path No. 1 is an independent innovator who works best alone. No. 1's remain dignified and dutiful. They are business oriented and will work without any respite until they achieve great fame. When someone displays positive No. 1 traits, they are capable of significant creative inspiration and possess the enthusiasm and drive to succeed. A No. 1 will welcome obstacles and challenges, as they achieve great pleasure from combining their strengths with a daring attitude. A No. 1's desire for independence is often apparent, and they can tire easily of routine.
Other No. 1's: Henry Ford, Dick Cheney, Tiger Woods, Maria Shriver, Sean Connery, George Lucas, Tom Hanks.

A note about "master numbers:"

That is CRAZY! I got number 2 and I'm a lawyer! Granted, I don't practice anymore but that's pretty cool! :)

annahita said...

so fun, it's dead on - I'm a 9 and I work in education... couldn't get any closer...

dave and jenn said...

Very interesting! I am a 3, and I would say that is pretty accurate, although not necessarily what I'm doing. :|

That's pretty cool. I'm a 4 and it's pretty much me to a tee! And probably why I'm struggling in my current job where there is no structure or organized environment!

This is so interesting! I'm an 8 but I'm a teacher so it doesn't quite match up. I can definitely imagine myself in real estate but never a lawyer or financial exec. Still fun though :)
